Association of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 rs1024611 and telomerase rs2736100 polymorphisms with susceptibility to pulmonary tuberculosis in Han Chinese population

Pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) is caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection and accumulated evidence reveals the genetic context of its infection phenotypes. Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) rs1024611 variant is shown to be associated with PTB susceptibility in some studies, but significant disparities exist. In addition, telomerase plays a key role in .. Read More»

Transcriptomic analysis of Camellia ptilophylla and identification of genes associated with flavonoid and caffeine biosynthesis

    M.M. Li, J.Y. Xue, Y.L. Wen, H.S. Guo, X.Q. Sun, Y.M. Zhang and Y.Y. Hang

Camellia ptilophylla, or cocoa tea, is naturally decaffeinated and its predominant catechins and purine alkaloids are trans-catechins and theobromine Regular tea [Camellia sinensis (L.) O. Ktze.] is evolutionarily close to cocoa tea and produces cis-catechins and caffeine. Here, the transcriptome of C. ptilophylla was sequenced using the 101-bp paired-end technique. The quality of the raw data .. Read More»

Development and characterization of microsatellite markers for the walking goby (Scartelaos viridis; Gobiidae)

    D.Q. Sun, H.Y. Li, T.J. Xu and R.X. Wang

Scartelaos viridis (walking goby) is a small edible fish that inhabits warm inshore environments. To provide molecular information of S. viridis, we developed and characterized microsatellite markers for this species. Using (CA)15-enriched genomic libraries of Scartelaos viridis, 44 positive clones were sequenced; 34 sequences contained multiple repeat motifs (di-, .. Read More»

IL-16 rs4778889 polymorphism contribution to the development of renal cell cancer in a Chinese population

    S.X. Yang, F. Chen, J.W. Zhang, Z.Q. Sun and B.P. Chen

IL-16 plays an important role in affect the secretion of tumor-related inflammatory cytokines. We aimed to assess the role of interleukin-16 (IL-16) rs4778889 T/C and rs11556218 T/G polymorphisms in the occurrence of renal cell cancer (RCC). This study is composed of 274 RCC patients and 274 control subjects. Genotyping of polymorphisms was performed using polymeras.. Read More»

DNA barcoding of populations of Fallopia multiflora, an indigenous herb in China

    X.Q. Sun, M.M. Bai, H. Yao, J.L. Guo, M.M. Li and Y.Y. Hang

Fallopia multiflora, locally known as Heshouwu, is one of the most important and widely used Chinese medicinal herbs. However, there is still considerable confusion concerning its different provenances. DNA barcoding is a recent aid to taxonomic identification and uses a short standardized DNA region to discriminate plant species. We assessed the applicability of 4 candidate DNA barcodes (matK,..

Rapid isolation and characterization of polymorphic microsatellite loci in the mud crab, Scylla paramamosain (Portunidae)

    H.F. Yao, D.Q. Sun, R.X. Wang and G. Shi

Scylla paramamosain is a widespread and commercially important species of coastal marine crab. We identified 13 polymorphic microsatellite loci from a genome library constructed with 5ê�?�?-anchored PCR method. Thirty-two S. paramamosain from the East China Sea were used to analyze the characteristics of these loci. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 3 to 8, with a mean of 5.923. Obse.. Read More»

A two-step method for identification of the Chinese glutinous rice Suyunuo, based on ISSR-SCAR and allele-specific markers

    Y.B. Lin, Y.M. Zhang, Y.Y. Hang, M.M. Li, G.C. Zhou, X.L. Shen and X.Q. Sun

Suyunuo is a valuable glutinous rice variety cultivated mainly in the Lake Taihu area of China. Historically, Suyunuo was presented to emperors as a tribute, and, still today, enjoys a great reputation in China. This study aimed to develop a unique, specific molecular marker for the identification of Suyunuo rice. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of int.. Read More»

Isolation and characterization of polymorphic microsatellite loci from aerial yam (Dioscorea bulbifera L.)

    Q.Q. Yan, Y. Li, X.Q. Sun, J.L. Guo, Y.Y. Hang and M.M. Li

Dioscorea bulbifera L. is widely distributed in pantropical regions along the equator. The taxonomic treatment of this species is ambiguous due to its extreme polymorphic morphological characters. In order to provide tools to facilitate the study of genetic diversity, population structure, patterns of gene flow, and the mating system of this species, and to assess i.. Read More»
